REVIEW | Revlon Powder Blush

Wow...the British summer is truly here, isn't it?  It has been raining non-stop since last night. Not impressed.  The silver lining is that I'm not going anywhere, so more blog posts! Yay!

Today I've got two blushers I'd like to show you.  I got these a couple of weeks ago and these were my first Revlon purchases.  For some bizarre reason, I do not own a single piece of Revlon cosmetics!  I needed to remedy that!

Revlon Powder Blush: Tawny Peach (left) & Berry Rich (right)

Revlon powder blush comes in four colours: Sandalwood Beige, Smoky Rose, Tawny Peach and Berry Rich.  I went for the Tawny Peach and Berry Rich. Tawny Peach is, well, a peach blush.  And the Berry Rich is a more darker pink toned blush.

I have used them both a few times now and sadly I wasn't blown away.  They are not very pigmented, so the colour doesn't show up that well when applied.  But if you're looking for a subtle, no-makeup glow - this is your thing.  I prefer the Tawny Peach, because I am obsesses with peach/coral shades.  Can't get enough frankly! I digress, moving on.

As you can see from the swatches, not amazing pigmentation.  I had to really rub (that sounds odd..) to get the swatches above!  But like I said, if you don't want a really 'made-up' look, a few swipes of this will leave you glowing! Almost like a highlighter.  I apply this with my Real Technique Blush brush (full review here).

My search for my staple blush continues.  I have a few more up my sleeves to show you over the next few weeks, so hang tight!

Have you tried the Revlon Powder Blushes?  What's your favourite this summer?
